Happy September, dear friends! Today I’m giving fall a big ole welcome with a DIY Fall Frame Wreath! I’m also touring with the ladies of the Seasonal Simplicity Series, hosted by my beautiful friend, Krista of The Happy Housie, so be sure to look out for even more DIY fall fun at the bottom!
Okay, let’s get to it!
Y’all know that when I join these tours, I still like to stay true to “me” by bringing in some thrifty element, so I dug around in my current haul to find something that I could use for today’s fall DIY project, and I came up with this picture:
I loved the frame on this piece, but the estate sale company had priced it at $25, so it was a hard pass for me. When it didn’t sell, my sister nabbed it for me along with a couple others, so it ended up being FREE yay!
The first thing to go was the floral picture that was in the center, it was warped and it was made of cardboard. I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
DIY Fall Frame Wreath
I loved the actual frame as is, so I didn’t even have to paint it, and that was the foundation for my new wreath.
I headed to Michaels to see what I could find to turn it into a fall wreath and found two pumpkin picks and a white pumpkin. It started as a pick also. Then I stopped by Hobby Lobby and found a nice fall greenery stem.
Here is everything I used to bring this fall frame wreath to life:
Not much, right?
Here is a quick two-minute video that shows how easily and quickly this unique fall wreath came together:
If you have trouble viewing, you can see it on YouTube HERE.
And here it is in pictures also:
The picks and greenery were held in place with craft wire, and everything else was attached with hot glue using my hot glue gun.
The gold on the frame is just perfect for a fall-inspired wreath!
It only took a few supplies to create this one of a kind wreath!
If you watched the video, you saw that I originally added a bow, but I just didn’t love it, so I swapped it out for this whimsical tag instead.
I actually made several small tags out of the original backing from this mirror makeover I shared recently:
You can see what I did with that mirror HERE. I replaced the old backing with fresh luan and y’all know I hate to toss anything, so it became several tags that I could use on other things later:
When I wasn’t loving the bow, I grabbed one of these tags and spray primed it in Rustoleum spray primer.
Then I removed the vinyl and attached the tag to my wreath using a few strands of thin jute twine.
It’s so much cuter than the traditional bow that was overwhelming this wreath..
And a starfish on a fall wreath? Why not? I live in a beach town, so I had to throw that in!
I have our new fall wreath hanging in our dining room at the moment…
It will go on our front door as soon as I change over to fall out on the porch. I just refuse to do it during a heat wave.
And y’all know my fall decor doesn’t last long.
It will soon be replaced with my favorite…H A L L O W E E N !
I hope you enjoyed this quick fall project!
